thanks for your patience last night and our retry,
heavens know what conditions were like! Even GB3LES
hadn’t returned to it’s usual strength with me by the
end of the contest!
wtKST – I run both KST2ME and wtKST [2 different
machines – I noted that at one point in the contest,
KST2ME said at the top bar – Disconnected but the drop
down said Connected – I simply disconnected and then
re connected ~ all was OK after that however I noted
that several others also relogged in at the same time,
so maybe a server issue. I would expect this to
affect wtKST too. Although I run wtKST my
“pea-shooter” station on 13cms is most unlikely, at
this time, to make use of AS. I did note that when I
woke the computer from screen saver that wtKST went
rather crazy with the main panel blinking and running
through many messages before stabilising ~ I then shut
it all down.
again for the QSO
I've experienced a similar
glitch on several occasions, and haven't yet figured out
what has caused it. It's not happened very often, and
the only way I could get the app going again was to
delete the entire wtKST folder from C://Ham Radio/wtKST
and replace it with a fresh set of files. I keep a copy
of the zip file so I can do this easily by simply
unzipping into my Ham Radio folder on the C drive.
I also like it very much, for
the reasons you state, although it lacks some of the
features of KST2Me that I find very useful, like the
ability to monitor the messages of selected stations,
which comes in handy in the timing of a request for a
sked. Also, it has a maximum number of stations active
on KST visible in the right-hand pane, so not all are
included at busy times. Not usually a problem on the
GM8IEM – IO78HF

Subject: [UKMicrowaves] wtKST
yesterdays UKAC, I ran wtKST for the first time -( yes I
know I'm slow on the uptake of new stuff !)
it a lot, or I did like it until it stopped working.
After a couple of hours it disconnected, although my
internet connection was fine. It would not reconnect and
I was then unable to close the program conventionally
and had to use the Task Manager. Following that I ran
the program again and it would not connect.
resorted to conventional 'KST, which worked as it
simple display of wtKST appeals to my simple mind, but
not if there are glitches like I experienced last night.
Is it a known bug or was I just unlucky ?
